I did it! I am finally back at it. Moving, grooving, making this foot of mine earn its keep! It’s been just the best week. Working out always makes me feel so much better overall. Mentally, physically, everything. I am so ready to get back out there and do what I want, when I want! Until the foot is completely ready healed, I will continue taking it slow and steady. Here’s what that looked like this past week (Friday-Thursday).
Friday – My first day to try out a short, 10-minute, flat walk with the foot. It was dreamy, but went by way too quickly! (2 WW FitPoints earned.)
Sunday – Another bump in my time to 15 minutes on the treadmill after an hour of playing tennis at the club with Sassy. By playing I mean hitting balls to her to return and being a target for her to serve against. I knew lunging at tennis balls would not be a good idea for me at this time. Soon enough!

Tuesday – 20 minutes was on the agenda and it was finally warm enough (but still very chilly!) to walk outside. So excited! It was dark by the time I got home from work so OMG Becky and I went to a well-lit, local walking trail with Stella. It felt amazing to breathe in the fresh air and relax! (3 WW FitPoints earned.)
Another slight bump in time for my walk tonight. Slow & steady. Have to keep this foot healthy! It was a chilly one with my daughter & pup. Had to wear my ear warmers! At what temp do you have to cover your ears? For me it's anything below 50°. I think I have wimpy ears. 😬 . . . . . #walk #winter #january #metatarsal #fracture #recovery #daughter #boxer #boxersofinstagram #sweatpink #iamempowered #zensah #withoutlimitz #xc #running #fitlife #teamzensah #athlete #ajh #brandambassador
Thursday – Another treadmill walk for me with another increase up to 30 minutes. It was a fine time, just kind of boring. I had planned to watch an On Demand show, but it kept freezing up. I finally turned on my favorite playlist and got it done! The girls went to a yoga class and I would have liked to join them, but again, I am waiting on things like that. Still protecting the foot for a bit longer! (5 WW FitPoints earned.)
Treadmill walk for me, yoga for my girls, & pouting for my dog because she didn't get to do either. 😭 🐶 #walk #treadmill #gym #metatarsal #stressfracture #injury #recovery #yoga #daughters #boxer #boxersofinstagram #dog #zensah #withoutlimitz #xc #running #fitlife #teamzensah #athlete #ajh #brandambassador #sweatpink #iamempowered
This week will be another week of walking and increasing my time. I hope the weather cooperates and I can get some of done outside! Though I don’t see that happening anytime soon. We have freezing rain tonight through Sunday afternoon. Not even sure if I will be able to get out to a treadmill tomorrow for my scheduled walk. Fingers crossed the ice isn’t as bad as the local news stations say it might be!
